During the winter of 1922, the exploration vessel, Raven, became trapped in the Antarctic icepack, entombing twenty-eight men aboard it through the dark polar night. Into White Silence tells their story - a story of a lost past, of a tragic future, of ice, ambition and madness. It captures the terrible, fascinating beauty of Antarctica, both as it was then and as it is today, and is a journey into the mind of every person who has ever set foot upon those ice-bound shores.
